Mere words cannot adequately express the debt of gratitude we owe to all those who have served. God bless you all.

Hawk, thank you from me also.

I visited the Vietnam Wall this summer and I thank all the people whose names are inscribed on that wall.

Thanks all -

Chris - I was at the Vietnam Memorial when it was first dedicated and they read all the names...too moving for words.
